Patrick Dougherty


Combinando abilità di falegname e amore per la natura, Patrick Dougherty ha cominciato a imparare le tecniche primitive di costruire e di sperimentare l’albero come materiale di costruzione
A partire dal 1980 circa, ha iniziato con piccole opere a definire il suo stile, le da poi trasformate in monumentali istallazioni. Fino ad oggi ha costruito oltre duecento sculture in tutto il mondo.
La sua base di partenza è la sua casa artigianale a Chapel Hill, Carolina del Nord dove vive con sua moglie Linda e il figlio Sam.
Combining his carpentry skills with his love of nature, Patrick Dougherty began to learn about primitive techniques of building and to experiment with tree saplings as construction material. Beginning about 1980 with small works, fashioned in his backyard, he quickly moved from single pieces on conventional pedestals to monumental site-specific installations that require sticks by the truckload. To date he has built over two hundred such massive sculptures all over the world.
His home base is his handmade house of log in Chapel Hill, NC where he lives with his wife Linda and son Sam.
